Communities for a Better Environment describes Toxic Tours as a way of increasing “public awareness of the low-income communities of color that are most directly impacted by multiple sources of toxics and pollution.” On the other hand, environmental degradation does not define Chester. Toxins and Treasures Tours help to redefine and share the complex narrative of Chester and its residents. Below is a collaboratively annotated virtual Toxins and Treasures Tour of Chester with not only locations such as the COVANTA incinerator, but also of many Chesterites’ most treasured places of fond memories and community.
Let’s explore Chester together.
